Meditation lies at the heart of Tibetan Buddhism. Retreat, even short periods, is essential to personal transformation on the Buddhist path. It enables us to go deeper into our meditation practices to develop positive far reaching, all encompassing, attitudes and to deal with those mental patterns which hinder us.
